About the organization:
The Patrick J. McGovern Foundation is a private foundation dedicated to advancing artificial intelligence and data science solutions to create a thriving, equitable, and sustainable future for all. PJMF works in partnership with academic institutions, non-profits, start-ups, and incubators in neuroscience, digital health, climate change, vulnerable populations and digital dignity, and has dedicated funding in the last year to address the COVID-19 pandemic.

Core to PJMF’s mission are inclusion, diversity, equity, and access. We apply the IDEA framework to all we do, from growing a diverse team within the Foundation, to coalition building with organizations and people around the world, to promoting trust-based philanthropic relationships, and democratizing the development and rewards of AI and data.
About the role:
The Operations Manager plays a significant role in increasing the effectiveness of a fast-growing foundation. Reporting to the Director of Finance and Operations, this individual will collaborate across the Operations team and proactively identify opportunities to make our organization stronger. The Operations Manager will own a variety of special projects and will be critical in understanding how we can expand our systems and technology to better meet current and future needs across the organization. This role will also work to establish our facilities and office management functions as we consider our future physical presence. This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic individual to help the foundation build a high performing, entrepreneurial philanthropic operation.

These attributes represent our current thinking for the role. You can be a great candidate even if you don't fit everything we've described below.

We want you to know:
We have built an environment that celebrates the differences in backgrounds and experiences. PJMF invests in activities that lead to greater inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility in how AI and data are conceptualized, developed, applied, and deployed. We are applying the same framework as our team grows and expands. We are an equal opportunity employer and we especially encourage and invite members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply.
We anticipate this role being physically based in Boston, Massachusetts when we have a physical presence, but we are open to remote candidates for both the immediate future and the long-term.
